Advances in HVAC technologies have changed the way we heat and cool our homes and businesses. Some of the most important developments in the industry involve the way in which these systems are powered and the methods by which they can be controlled. Variable speed options, remotely programmable thermostats, and geothermal systems are among the most popular new choices for homeowners and building managers in the state of Texas. Here is a closer look at these key echnologies for new AC systems and how they are shaping the future of heating and cooling.

Variable Speed

An article published in the Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration News outlines the advantages of variable speed motors. Cooling systems that use variable or 2 stage compressors can adapt more precisely to demand from the thermostat. Rather than running at 100 percent capacity or shutting down completely, these systems can adjust to the need for cooling inside your home or office by running at half power or, for some variable speed motors, at a higher or lower fraction of full capacity. This can reduce noise and energy consumption while providing the most customized comfort for those inside.

Advanced Thermostat Controls

Programmable thermostats offer added convenience for homeowners. In recent years, however, new control systems have emerged that offer even greater ease of use:

  • Wi-Fi thermostats allow anytime, anywhere adjustment of temperatures through your smartphone or internet connection.
  • Zoned systems can provide customized comfort for specific areas or rooms of your home or business.

These advanced systems can offer enhanced comfort while keeping your utility bills low during hot Texas summers.

Geothermal Systems

Geothermal heating and cooling systems draw on the stabilizing power of the earth to provide high-efficiency climate control for homes and commercial buildings in our area. This advanced equipment requires added steps and expenses during initial installation but typically offers significant savings on cooling costs over the life of your geothermal system. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that most homeowners will recoup their investment within five to 10 years of initial installation.
